nice dinner recommendation in Lakeview
I'm looking for a nice dinner recommendation in Lakeview. I know there are lots of good options in Lincoln Park but I'd rather not venture that far south. All cuisines and price ranges work, I would just like a place that would be appropriate for a nice date. I'll be going on a week night, so I'm not concerned about it being crowded or a long wait.
I think Sola is great. It tends to get loud (mostly just because of the airy, open design), but on a weeknight I can't imagine it would be too bad: www.sola-restaurant.com.
Must it be in Lakeview, or do you just prefer it to be north? We love Bistro Campagne in Lincoln Square as well... www.bistrocampagne.com. Very charming and would be a great date place - but I'd make reservations just to be sure you get a table.
Just a couple of suggestions to start with!
I don't know what your definitition of "appropriate for a nice date" is, but I'd be all about Tac Quick for Thai. Granted it wouldn't be as "nice" as Jack's, or probably quite a few of the places that would be considered "appropriate" by some, but you're gonna get great Thai food, it's byob (with corkage) and it's not a "shack" by any means. I might be more adventurous than most when it comes to what is "appropriate," but I'm always look for something different than most.
Try Casbah, on Broadway, about a block South of Belmont- cozy, dark atmosphere- Middle Eastern menu with french influences- great food and service- reasonably priced
it's a little gem in the neighborhood
